Klavs' latest creation is a fascinating interpretation of what the mysterious Double Helix might look like. Rarely mentioned outside of the Comm Relay in Claw Marks, the unusual description of their ships has spawned years of curiosity from the fans. "From the information we have so far been able to interpret from H227's records, the Double Helix are a sentient race possessing space travel, and we are not ruling out the possibility they possess FTL drive technology. Physically, they appear to be carbon-based arthropods which communicate through scents and pheromones. Their name is derived from the double-helix shape of their spacecraft." Before he went to work on System Shock, Warren Spector actually put together a pitch for Alien Commander which would have been set on the wreckage of the Claw and had the player face off against Double Helixes! However, since that game was never made, this is the next best thing!
"Wayne, could you confirm the telemetry on H227 again please? We might need another pot of coffee, too. Looks like it's gonna be a long night..."
